The first time you’ll try to visit a website, a window will appear asking for an username and a password.

Type your VPN username and password.

You can find your VPN username and password in your account on our website, by going to Settings -> VPN Username & Password. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).
